Welcome to Plathville Spoilers: ‘I felt like I was losing my mind’
In last week’s episode of Welcome to Plathville we hear from Olivia as she explains that she moved in with a friend, leaving Ethan to list the home.
In the episode, she returns to the house to find a note from Ethan saying he left, but from what can be seen in the preview, they’ll be talking soon.
Ethan discusses why he left, saying, “I just— with everything going on between me and Olivia, I literally felt like I didn’t know what to do and I could not mentally or physically process any of it,” saying he felt like he was losing his mind and needed a break.
Welcome to Plathville Spoilers: ‘I wanted Ethan to Be Able to Make His Own Choices’
“Deciding to move out is [sic] the hardest decision I have ever had to make in my relationship with Ethan,” Olivia says in the clip, explaining what happened that made her leave that night.
“I left, one night, after a really intense argument, and, to me it was just like a survival move and I didn’t discuss it beforehand, and I didn’t know what to do.”
She goes into a little more detail saying that she thought the driving force for her moving out was that she, “wanted Ethan to be able to make his own decisions and choices,” adding that sometimes she believes that Ethan just goes along with what she says just to avoid upsetting her but, she says, “That’s not good for him either.”
Welcome to Plathville Spoilers: Trying to Make the Marriage Work
The reality TV star went on to say that she felt like, if she didn’t do something, they would lose their marriage.
She explains that she didn’t have a long-term plan and didn’t know what was going to happen before she began to tear up saying, “I was trying so hard to like make the marriage work.”
“The biggest question that I had to ask myself was if I could really accept you for who you are – who you’ve become – because a lot of things have changed. The bottom line at the end of the day that I’ve always asked myself over the past week or so is given that’s what I want, is there anyone else that I would want that with?”
So, we knew that there was trouble in their relationship and that Olivia had left but now it seems that there is still hope for the two of them to work things out because the love remains.
